The students and faculty at Pasco High School have a lot to be proud of with their production of In the Heights. As a regular attendee of local theater and member of the Mid-Columbia Musical Theater, this performance is one of the best in recent history. Only Pasco with its diversity of students could undertake such a production. The cast is strong from the leads to the chorus. The orchestra, under the direction of Randy Bjur, does a fabulous job of complementing the actors through this strong vocal show.
The set captures the heart of the neighborhood in New York where the show is set. It works well for the flow of the show and adds depth to the performance. The choreography is well rehearsed and enhances the overall presentation. There are several breakout moments from the chorus with dance training.
The last performances are this weekend and it is truly worth the time to see what can happen when some dedicated teachers and committed students put their hearts and soul into making a performance of such high standard. Get your tickets early, you don't want to miss out on this one.
